Just sittin in the grass

Ah its time I posted something again.
Thought this might be good.


A copy of the original can be found here

A larger version of my effort can be found here

It was Danny that gave me the idea to do something in B&W, he's on a roll with it right now.

Now go and enjoy.


Peter

Re: Just sittin in the grass

Great photo to play with, Peter! How 'bout some sepia tones?

Desaturate, pushed pixels around then painted with the art history brush and history brush. Added film grain and a touch of texture.

Watercolor illustration on textured paper.

And it's kind of nice to be able to post 200K files now.

Re: Just sittin in the grass

Sepia is OK with me Swampy I like that one.
lkroll nice to see all the picture at once instead of a crop!!!
Palms I' glad your doing as your told for a CHANGE you've inspired me to get out my AHB brushes again. Cassidy very nice version there.
Steve looks like you've been using Redfields there BTW I hate you for thinking of a better title for this thread.

Peter

Larger version for this effort of mine here, there is a texture there but at this res it's hard to see hence the link.

LOL...Guess I just got to thinking of the ancient Clifton Webb movie of the same name when I titled this interpretation.

Nope...didn't use Redfields's. This is a new style from the latest version of Gertrudis Pro, (not out yet.) Have been helping out as a beta tester for this program.

And thanks.
